Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grafton District Curriculum
Taylor County Schools students take tests and assessments so their teachers can gauge where they are at and help them achieve to the best of their abilities. WESTest2 tests are given to evaluate proficiency in Core subject. There is also a program that helps students write according to expected requirements called WV Writes. This program allows students to practice writing and gain feedback based on their performance which can help them on state and standardized tests. MAP tests are also given to assess students’ level in reading, writing and math. These tests also help teachers know how students need to improve. These are taken three times per year in grades kindergarten through ten.
Outside the classroom, students have different projects they can work on to raise awareness about local or national issues, participate in character development activities, and work with other students on works of art or putting together exhibits. These learning opportunities are emphasized for the collaborative abilities they develop in the students.

Chalk Talk: How to Study Effectively
Studying can be difficult and students often find that studying is a learned habit, not one that comes natural. Here are a few ways to help you in the studying process. Begin by setting aside a time and a place for studying. It should be clean and organized, ready each day for your studying needs. It is good to keep whatever studying tools you usually use in that location as well. These could include writing and highlighting utensils, rulers, flash cards, notebooks, folders, or other items. When you study, shut other things down. Don’t have Facebook, the TV and your cell phone all up at the same time. Work for the length of time that you can concentrate and then take a break. Breaks should not be longer than 10 minutes. If you can study well for 20 minutes but then need a break, go ahead and take one. You will find that your time will be far more efficiently spent.
